No: Ovulation with subsequent fertilization - pregnancy - prevents further ovulation during the course of your pregnancy. If you breastfeed after delivery, this usually suppresses ovulation as well.

Ovulation.: The best time to work on getting pregnant is around ovulation. Ovulation is mid- cycle, so it will vary depending on the length of your cycle. See an ovulation predictor chart or try using an ovulation predictor kit to hit spot on.

Just the opposite: Ovulation means a woman is not pregnant. Pregnant women do not ovulate. Of course, pregnant women got pregnant (if a natural pregnancy) by ovulating and spending some time with guys (who contributed sperm). After becoming pregnant, a woman won't ovulate again until weeks or months after her baby is born.
